The rain is finally going away and the humidity is creeping up.
I hate walking outside and instantly feeling like I've been
sweating for hours! Eww! We had one exam this week but it was a
scary one. Clinical cardio respiratory. It's intimidating because
you have to dig deep all the way from 2nd Trimester and remember
some big ideas about action potentials and all that fun stuff. It
also didn't help that I remain distracted and lack motivation to
After the exam was over, I felt confident and that I ended up
being pretty prepared for it. I was really grateful for Ryan and
some classmates that helped me understand some major concepts. It's
great that we can lean on each other when the understanding isn't
Homecoming arrived and that also meant we got off of school
Thursday afternoon and all day Friday! It was awesome (homecoming
and no school)!

I went to homecoming to work the SACA booth on Friday, and it
was great to be familiar with some of the vendors there that are
available for me as a future clinician. I also got to meet with
some doctors and discuss some of my goals and aspirations as a dual
DC/ND. The vendors also gave away awesome free stuff that is always
a plus as a student. I got a sacroiliac belt, some fruit bars,
pens, topical ointments, vitamins/supplements, and free bags! SACA
Day, which is tentatively scheduled for early October, will also
feature some of the same vendors, so stay tuned!
This weekend, Ryan and I were so excited to head to Michigan for
some menu tasting and some relaxation. Ryan also told me he would
give me part I of my birthday gifts! (My birthday is June 26th). I
was so excited because I couldn't guess why he would have my gift
at his house in Michigan.
When we got there, he had me close my eyes, and there was
Delilah! He got me a kitten because I always talked about how we
should get a "Delilah" since we have a Samson. (Samson &
Delilah are from the Bible). I was so surprised, and I fell in love
right away. We both love animals and Delilah is a big ball of crazy
but she's so much fun. We can't wait to add Bernard (St. Bernard)
to our family one day too!
Overall, it was a bit of a stressful weekend because wedding
talk isn't the best relaxation tool. We've been so overwhelmed
lately with the finances, busy work, and time commitment it takes
to plan a wedding from a long distance. I am just trying to keep up
with school, working on our future marriage and life together, and
staying sane all at the same time! Only two months away! I can't
believe it, but I am so excited for the day to finally
Next week: I will include a recipe for an amazing salad that I
came up with about two months ago. It's fresh, tasty, and full of
Tip of the week: Lean on each other. Your classmates can be a
good source of knowledge!
